These 3 shops will give you a better idea than anyone else, I suggest you give them a call:

Fair enough, but what someone else paid may not mean you can get it done for that price. For example if they've been going to a shop for a while, they may get a slightly better price or if they do things together the price may be discounted because of that.

I usually like to get my own quotes as they are the only ones that matter, not what tom/dick/harry/joe blow paid last year in Tim bucktoo.

I ordered the clutch myself and brought it to a Euro shop in windsor
They did a great job and whole thing cost around 550 or so (parts and labour)

I'd say your gunna be around $1000 by the time its all said and done, depending on how bad the flywheel is(if it is warped from running a poooched clutch disc for sometime than it may need to be re-surfaced or replaced), plus don forget to replace the throw out bearing and rear main seal since you are already there......

I had my 328 done at the dealership and it was around $1000
for the m3 I ordered the full clutch kit off ebay for reletively cheap and brought it to a small euro shop who did an excellent job. As I stated in my previoyus post I paid about 600 for parts and labour....work was done a year ago and it still feels amazing

This was for an E46M not an E36.

Sorry to get this old thread out, but I'm in looking to change mine on a 2003 m3.

Found the clutch itself (OEM LUK for 315$) but don't know how much to expect on labour. Can anyone give me a ballpark price here?

If I recall, it's around 6 hours of labor to do a transmission removal so that should give you a rough idea on the clutch job. I think most shops quote approx $1000 parts and labor.

If I'm not mistaken, the M3 has a dual mass flywheel like the regular 3 series.

Since your clutch has gone, there's a good chance the DMF will need replacing as well.
(Cannot be machined. Also, the springs wear out causing chatter)

This will significantly increase cost of the job.

Yes, significantly!
